Right Whales Whisper To Their Babies

North Atlantic right whales mothers have been found to talk very quietly, or whisper, to their babies to avoid attracting any unwanted attention from predators such as orcas.

Normally right whales use a rising call or ‘whoop’ sound to communicate with each other but right whale mothers cleverly ‘whisper’ to their babies by their sides in a much lower tone so that only the baby can hear.

There are sadly on around 400 North Atlantic right whales left in the world today.
